HB 1765 -- School Calendar

Sponsor:  Hagan-Harrell

This bill permits any school district to prepare a calendar of
200 days and 1,200 hours of attendance, divided into 4 10-week
quarters with 2 weeks between quarters, and 20 days for use as
holidays.  The bill directs the Department of Elementary and
Secondary Education to assist with funding for capital
improvements and additional teachers' salaries for districts
that adopt a year-round calendar.  The definition of "average
daily attendance," which currently contains provisions to
calculate the full-time equivalent of attendance during summer
school, is revised to delete that portion of the calculation.
Average daily attendance will be calculated by dividing the
total number of hours attended in a term by resident pupils by
the hours school was in session multiplied by the hours of
actual attendance divided by 1,044.
